Project #11468 - DB 3 - SCIE

The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.

At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.

The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

Background:

Biotechnology allows the use of living organisms or their processes for human needs or purposes. Currently, this topic includes such general examples as cloning, stem cells (adult, umbilical cord, and embryonic), DNA fingerprinting, biological warfare, bioremediation, genetically modified organisms, vaccines, and transgenic plants and animals to name a few. In this assignment, you will explore specific examples of biotechnology applications.

Assignment details:

Research how a SPECIFIC biotechnology application within the above GENERAL examples (or ones not listed above) is used today. Example: Insulin production in bacteria is an example under the general topic of recombinant organisms.

  What specific biotechnology application did you choose?

  Briefly describe this biotechnology application. How is it done?

  Based upon the definition of biotechnology in the assignment, describe how your biotechnology application is an example of biotechnology.

  What benefits are derived from this application?

  Are there any concerns or negative impacts associated with this use of biotechnology? Why or why not?

Provide references in APA format. This includes a reference list and in-text citations for references used throughout the assignment.

Important: Each person in the class should choose a DIFFERENT biotechnology application. Read other students' posts first to see what they have selected and choose a different biotechnology application.

This assignment will also be assessed using additional criteria provided here.

In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.
